Racist Inaugural Poem?

The “racist” angle, going forward : NO QUARTER: "...Then there was the nice little poem that Rev. Lowery recited at the end of the inaugural benediction:

Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right.

Wow. The good will and votes of millions of whites still means whites need to “embrace what is right.” Think the Rev. recited this without it having been vetted? Not on your life. Oh, and to all the “yellow” who need to be “mellow,” I guess that means you’re too uptight. Chill out and stop taking all the top places in schools..."
